Barcelona legend Xavi: Frenkie de Jong a beastly talent

Barcelona legend Xavi believes Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong would settle quickly at the LaLiga champions.

De Jong is a top target for Barca this summer.

And Xavi says: "I have not seen him play a lot, but he does look like Sergio Busquets in terms of playing style.

"The Ajax school is a bit like the one in Barcelona. We all come from the Dutch school, via Crujff. De Jong is young, but I think he can make a huge contribution now.

"He is seen as a beastly talent. He is really a player to keep an eye on, a very good player."

Xavi, now in charge of Al Sadd, added: "Arthur, Rabiot and De Jong are the type of players that Barcelona needs. They are players who are technically very gifted, work hard for the team and have a lot of talent. Because that's what Barcelona is all about."
